EAZWV provides Grant Funding via the Zebra Foundation for Veterinary Zoological Education 


EAZWV is committed to supporting Vet Students and Vets just embarking on careers in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine. Through our partnership with the Zebra foundation, we provided over €18.000 of grant funding over the last three years.


The Zebra Foundation for Veterinary Zoological Education was created with the objective of helping veterinary students and surgeons from anywhere in the world gain additional experience in zoological and wildlife medicine. Whatever your current role, this foundation exists to assist all those with a direct interest and ambition in advancing this specialist field.

This is done mainly in the form of financial awards to assist the initiation and completion of projects with relevant zoological content. This could be an elective study as part of a degree or higher qualification, field or laboratory research.

The Zebra Foundation is a registered charity, funded by public donations, and the EAZWV together with the British Veterinary Zoological Society (BVZS), is a substantial supporter of this foundation.

The trustees meet twice yearly to assess and determine awards and the deadlines for applications are the 31st of March and the 30th of September.

Additional Funding Sources:

In 2012, The American Association of Zoo Veterinarians (AAZV) established the Zoological Medicine and Wildlife Health Research Grant program which is funded by The Wild Animal Health Fund.  

The intent of the research grants is to improve the care and conservation of captive and free-ranging wildlife. Grants are awarded in amounts that do not exceed $10,000 and will be granted on annual basis. EAZWV members are eligible to apply for these grants if they partner with an AAZV member. (An AAZV member must be one of the primary investigators). For more information and the latest application deadlines, click here.
